STANLEY CHARLES MYRICK - BRIDPORT - Stanley Myrick, 61, passed away peacefully at his home on Thursday, Sept. 19, 2013, surrounded by his loving family, after a long battle with cancer. Stan was born in Burlington, Aug. 27, 1952, the son of Robert and Rita (Counter) Myrick. Stan graduated from Middlebury Union High School in 1970, and went on to earn his Technology Certification through Bell & Howell Schools. In his early years he was a selfemployed carpenter, and later worked for Middlebury College at the Breadloaf Campus for 18 years, until he took early retirement. His carpentry skills are evidenced by his home, the sugarhouse, a sawmill and other structures he leaves behind. His interests included many sports: softball, horseshoes, bowling and more recently, golf. He was an avid St. Louis Cardinals fan, a longtime follower of The Allman Brothers Band, and a charter member of The Bridport Gentleman's Club. He continued the family tradition of Maple Sugaring. The Sugar House which he built became a gathering place for family and friends. His home was always a place of welcome where one could drop by, throw a few horseshoes, check out the vegetable garden, watch the birds at the feeders, or just sit and chat about solving the world's problems. Stan is survived by his parents, Robert and Rita Myrick of Bridport; three brothers, Larry and wife, Tammy, of Knoxville, Tenn., Steve and wife, Cindy, of Bridport, and Dennis and wife, Andrea, of Derby; four sisters, Mary Paquette of New Haven, Nancy Myrick of Bridport, Susan Gilbert of Glastonbury, Conn., and Lori Myrick of East Windsor, Conn. He also leaves behind many nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his brother, Dana Myrick in 1995. A church service will be held at St. Bernadette's Church in Bridport on Saturday, Oct. 5, 2013, at 11 a.m. Online condolences may be made at www.sandersonfuneralservice.com. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Addison County Home Health and Hospice, PO Box 745, Middlebury, VT 05753.
